Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
What would stop the USB ports from working? They won't charge my controllers, but they will read a USB memory stick...
All I could say is have a person who is really smart with technology take your Ps3 aapart and check the diodes on your fuse board (green plate that has a buncha little things on it). check to see if your diodes could be burnt or possobly loose. unless you can take it apart but have troubles putting it back together i wouldent try it. have a really smart person fix it. not a scientist or some guy from a company...justi make sure they no wat they are doing. I messed up my USBs by having a short in my keyboard. it tells me to plug in my controler but It wont read my controlers. theres a 92% chance its somthing wrong with my USB ports. I hope this helps you out.

Your USB ports on your computer are plug and play. If you have issues with your USB port, it is port related, driver related or device related. The following solutions will help you identify the problem to resolve your USB port issues.
To Identify a Working USB Port
Begin troubleshooting your USB ports by checking Device Manager to see if your USB ports or hubs are working properly.
To Update the USB Port Driver
An out-of-date BIOS driver can create issues with your system recognizing the USB port.

Yes I have, a known good one. I can connect to my laptop and the controller charges.
I bought a new controller that connects wirelessly via the USB port. When I plug in the USB adaptor, I get a green light briefly and then it goes out.

I have the same issue and you can do 2 things. go to videogame911.com or buy new usb ports and install them yourself. sony is way too much money for an easy fix.
